So Joe's comment on the last post really got me thinking about how I eliminated all the negative talk in my head and I realized it all started with the Sedona Method.
It's similar to another process called The Work but I loved the simplicity of it. It's used to question your thoughts and let go. It breaks down to this process:
Step 1: Focus on an issue you would like to feel better about.Step 2: Ask yourself one of the following questions: Could I let this feeling go? Could I allow this feeling to be here? Could I welcome these feelings?Step 3: Ask yourself the basic question: Would I? Am I willing to let go?Step 4: Ask yourself this simpler question: When?
And repeat. It's recommended to do this for both positive and negative emotions so you don't get attached to either and can stay fully in the present moment.
I purchased a paraliminal that uses the method. Paraliminals are tracks developed by a company called Learning Strategies that uses Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Accelerated Learning, Preconscious Processing, and Brainwave Entrainment to allow you to lie back and listen and still get results. They partnered with the head of The Sedona Method to develop this CD (which is so much cheaper as a digital download).
I would listen to it as I went to sleep. I carried the tracks on my phone and when something would upset me, I would listen to them as I travelled. Quickly, I found myself calmer. I can't tell you when it happened but one day I noticed I wasn't talking shit to myself anymore. Everything changed.
If this is something that interests you but money is an issue, let me know. I still have the tracks.
